To my chagrin, I’ve never visited New York City, although I greatly look forward to getting over there for a ride. One of the first stops on that trip would be to say g’day to Ezra Caldwell of Fast Boy Cycles. I’m a fan not only of the restrained and subtle sense of style he applies to his handmade frames, but also of his courageous spirit. He recently received a simple brief from Cory which must have read along these lines: make it tall and capable of carrying two six-packs of well-crafted beer.
Cory ended up with a dream bike built from super thin oversize tubes ensuring a light and stiff ride. Ezra fabricated a nifty method of mounting the custom rack which supports the wooden beer crate. Ezra exclusively specifies the ultra-reliable White Industries drive train for his bikes, and it appears again here, the polished finish contrasting brightly with the olive and gun blue finish. Those fenders are custom made by Ezra also, an optional extra when ordering one of his beautifully tailored machines.
